So, how are you doing?
No…really. HOW are you doing?
Are you plodding along and doing okay?
Or are you feeling exhausted and lacking energy?
Or does it depend on the day? (That’s probably more like it.)
Between a pandemic, the holidays, a crazy election, your business, and a million other little things pulling at you right now, keeping your energy up may seem like a chore.
I was feeling the drain myself, and it makes a lot of sense. (Check out this article in Medium for more on why)
Our brains are literally overwhelmed as they try to process everything. It really makes perfect sense why our energy is disappearing.
And yet, we are entrepreneurs. We are ALWAYS thinking of new ideas, new solutions, new…well, you name it! Consistency for us IS change!
But change takes energy.
While a cup of coffee might help you get through holiday shopping and Christmas merrymaking, it’s probably not going to give you enough energy to help you with your business.
In years past, I would have embraced a push at the end of the year. This year I am returning to fail-safe systems and small steps that I know I can successfully implement.
Because guess what? There will be time in the next year for new projects and growth, and I need to feel good right now – and you do, too! And small victories are the answer!
So, here’s what I’m doing:
All of these things give you focus and help you create energy. Are you willing to give these things a try with me as we trudge through these last few weeks?
And if the answer is no and you’ve said, “To heck with it! Let the holidays begin! Bring on the cookies, champagne, and my comfy clothes! Business can wait until 2021!” – I’ve got your back! And I’ll be here for you in January.
Smile and hang in there!
Being an entrepreneur and business owner is hard! Once you have your business up and running it's not uncommon to hit a few snags: scalability, staff retention, launching growth projects, getting enough sleep!
